Stella is a clever, lively, sharp-witted young woman, but she also suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder and, despite many years of therapy, she can’t seem to leave her past behind. At twenty-seven, she turns to Ender, an organisation that would help her obtain deadly drugs.
There, she meets Milou, a young filmmaker who wants to make a documentary about Stella’s decision to end her life. In the weeks leading up to Stella’s planned suicide, Milou encourages her to tell her story. As Stella’s past unfolds into a more and more complicated reality, Milou comes in contact with Stella’s former psychiatrist, who is determined to prevent her death at the last minute.
